The club had options on both players and decided to pick them up. Chen posted a 3.54 ERA over 185 2/3 innings last year. O'Day posted a 1.70 ERA over 68 2/3 innings.
Haren opted to exercise a $10 million option to stay with the team. In his first season with Los Angeles, Haren posted a 4.02 ERA 186 innings.
Butler slumped last season, hitting .271/.323/.379 over 549 at-bats. He hit just nine home runs. Butler is owed $12 million next season, and the team is expected to go a different direction.
Duffy suffered a stress fractuce in his ribcage late in the year, which prevented him from throwing more than two or three innings at a time. Duffy was a candidate to start the first game of the ALDS until the injury cropped up. Duffy was excellent down the stretch for Kansas City. He posted a 2.53 ERA over 149 1/3 innings.
Mathis is owed $1.5 million next season, and the club will likely pick that up. Mathis isn't much of a threat at the plate, but receives high marks for his defense and ability to work with a pitching staff.
Adams could have been brought back for $6 million, but the team opted to cut bait. He posted a 2.89 ERA over 18 2/3 innings, but struggled with arm injuries throughout the year.
A shoulder injury limited Profar throughout the entire season. The team will give Profar three more weeks before re-evaluating him. The hope is that Profar will be cleared by January. He did not appear in the majors last season.
Castillo is dealing with a thumb injury, and the team wants to play it safe. It's unclear whether Castillo will go to Puerto Rico in order to play winter ball.
He's back! After serving a full season suspension, Rodriguez has been reinstated by the club. It's unclear what role Rodriguez will play next season. There have been reports that A-Rod may see time at first or could serve as the designated hitter. The 39-year-old hit .244/.348/.423 over 156 at-bats back in 2013.
Lackey's contract situation was somewhat unique. Since he missed time a couple years ago due to elbow surgery, Lackey's 2015 option dropped to just $500,000. The move was a no-brainer for St. Louis. Last season, Lackey posted a 3.82 ERA over 198 innings.
